Former team boss Flavio Briatore insists that he is not interested in returning to Formula 1, despite his presence in the Monza paddock during the Italian GP weekend.

The flamboyant Italian left Renault and the sport amid disgrace and the ‘crashgate’ scandal, but has often been linked with a return to Formula 1, possibly in a commercial role.

The 63-year-old returned at least to the Monza paddock on Saturday, but he was accompanied by his wife and three-year-old son.

“I’m not looking for a job, that’s for sure,” Briatore told the German broadcaster Sky.

“I am currently very happy with my life and my job. My life is very exciting – I have a wonderful wife and a wonderful baby. We are a wonderful family.

“Before, my family was the team. Now there are only two people, which is much easier to manage,” he smiled. (GMM.)
